Microblading:
Hairstroke Eyebrows

Gem Precision Beauty Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that can correct or fully reconstruct eyebrows. Pigment is implanted beneath the skin surface by means of a small, sterile, disposable needle to produce the appearance of fuller eyebrows or to enhance the natural features of the face.

Microblading is considered semi permanent, as it will need to be refreshed every 12 to 18 months to prevent fading. Without refreshing, the pigment will fade over time and typically last between one and three years, depending on skin type, metabolic rate, pigment, sun exposure and other factors.

A consultation and patch test is necessary before a microblading procedure can be scheduled.

Before your Microblading appointment:

  • For one month prior; discontinue any retinol or vitamin A products; no Botox.
  • For two weeks prior; no tanning, no facial peels or exfoliation or electrolysis.
  • For one week prior; no fish oil or vitamin E (natural blood thinners).
  • Do not drink alcohol for 24-48 hours before.
  • Do not consume coffee for at least 5 hours before appointment.
  • Do not take asprin or other blood thinners for pain relief.
  • No working out on the day of the procedure.

Aftercare

Gem Precision Beauty Gemma will fully detail your aftercare during your appointment and provide you with the products to heal your brows successfully. The aftercare includes washing the brows and applying a thin layer of healing ointment/oil in order to keep the brows nourished.

You must avoid facials and microdermabrasion for four weeks after treatment. Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week, as sweat contains salt, this is how we remove permanent makeup! Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for four weeks after treatment.

Lashes

You have a choice of three styles of lashes:

  • Classic Lashes: a one synthetic lash per one natural lash technique to give some extra length and volume and curl.
  • Volume Lashes: handmade fans of 3 to 6 lightweight lashes per one natural lash, a technique for dramatic volume, curl and length.
  • Hybrid Lashes: a mixture of both classic and volume techniques. This is the most popular as it gives a good balance of volume, curl and length without being too dramatic.

All Lash extensions can be styled and customised to make the lashes look perfect for you.
